Kuching Cat Museum, Malaysia

6 of 27

Cats are considered lucky in Malaysia, as in many Asian cultures, and the Kuching Cat Museum in Sarawak pays respectful, if slightly wacky, homage to these fortune-bestowing felines. For starters, you enter the UFO-style building through a giant cat face. Inside await exhibitions, artifacts, artworks, and ephemera dedicated to cats. The pièce de résistance: a thousand-year-old mummified Egyptian kitty. The museum is on a hill, with great views of the city of Kuching—which translates as “cat city.” —Emma Sloley
